Legendary blues guitarist from Canned Heat, Harvey ‘The Snake’ Mandel, presents this deluxe limited edition 6CD box set that includes 5 classic solo albums from 1968-1972 plus a bonus vintage concert recording from 1968 that features guests Jerry Garcia & Elvin Bishop!
Each of these albums showcase Mandel’s innovative, hugely influential playing that earned him a place alongside not just the Heat but also The Rolling Stones, John Mayall and others. Snake Box is a treasure trove of heretofore underappreciated gems. Harvey Mandel is an artist who starts with blues and then pushes far beyond the supposed boundaries of the genre. Those receptive to such an approach are well advised to dive into this box set.
All 6 CDs come individually packaged in their own cardboard sleeve, reproducing the artwork from the vinyl jacket along with a full color booklet with detailed liner notes by rock historian Dave Thompson.
